NCES 2001072 The Condition of Education, 2001
The Condition of Education summarizes important developments and trends in education using the latest available data. The report, which is required by law, is an indicator report intended for a general audience of readers who are interested in education. The indicators represent a consensus of professional judgment on the most significant national measures of the condition and progress of education for which accurate data are available. The 2001 print edition includes 59 indicators in six main areas: (1) enrollment trends and student characteristics at all levels of the education system from preprimary education to adult learning; (2) student achievement and the longer term, enduring effects of education; (3) student effort and rates of progress through the educational system among different population groups; (4) the quality of elementary and secondary education in terms of courses taken, teacher characteristics, and other factors; (5) the context of postsecondary education; (6) and societal support for learning, including parental and community support for learning, and public and private financial support of education at all levels. Also in the 2001 edition is a special focus essay on the access, persistence, and success of first-generation students in postsecondary education.

NCES 2000062 The Condition of Education, 2000
The Condition of Education is an indicator report, summarizing the health of education, monitoring important developments, and showing trends in major aspects of education. The 65 indicators included examine relationships; show changes over time; compare or contrast sub-populations, regions, or countries; or assess characteristics of students from different backgrounds and types of schools. An indicator is policy relevant and problem oriented; it typically incorporates a standard against which to judge progress or regression. Please remember, however, that indicators are not intended to identify causes or solutions, and cannot individually by themselves provide a completely comprehensive view of conditions in education.

NCES 2000169 Low-Income Students: Who They Are and How They Pay for Their Education.

Then, focusing on low-income students who attend full time, full year, it examines their financial need, describes the contribution of financial aid, and presents what is known about how they close the gap between what they have to pay and the amount of aid they receive. Finally, the report compares three-year persistence among low-income and not-low-income undergraduates.
NCES 2000153 Mapping the Road to College: First-Generation Students’ Math Track, Planning Strategies, and Context of Support
This publication compares first-generation students (i.e., those whose parents have no more than a high school education) with their peers whose parents attended college. It focuses on mathematics course taking—the effectiveness of taking algebra in 8th grade and advanced math courses in high school in getting to college—and planning strategies students used to prepare for college. The report also examines the involvement of students’ parents, teachers, and other “institutional agents” capable of helping them prepare for college.

NCES 19933156 The National Longitudinal Study of the High School Class of 1972: Annotated Bibliography of Studies, 1980-1992.
The National Longitudinal Study of the High School Class of 1972 (NLS-72) is the "grandmother" of the longitudinal studies designed and conducted by the National Center for Education Statistics, and is probably the richest archive ever assembled on a generation of Americans. Participants were selected as high school seniors in 1972 and were followed through postsecondary transcripts in 1984. In 1981, Samuel Peng assembled a bibliography of studies describing or using NLS-72 data. This publication extends Peng's work by describing the considerable number of studies published since the first bibliography. Works are arranged in the following categories: (1) general descriptions (data sets and populations); (2) methodology; (3) work (employment); (4) secondary education; (5) postsecondary education; (6) educational and occupational aspirations; (7) educational and occupational attainment; (8) gender and racial-ethnic differences; (9) vocational technical and vocational education; (10) teachers; (11) marriage, family, and life transitions; (12) economics of education; (13) testing; (14) others; and (15) tabulations. In all, 259 sources are listed and annotated with a brief description of the study and its methodology. Publication of this document coincides roughly with the release of an optical data disk with the NLS-72 data archive, manuals, and sample computer programs. (SLD)
